Recycled Paper Ornaments

Mrs. Taylor over at School at St. George Place shared this awesome idea for ornaments made from recycled magazine pages!!! I decided to try it out with my 4th and 5th graders who were finished early with their painting unit, and oooohhh it turned out so great!!!

We used our massive collection of bottle caps to trace circles of various sizes and glued them together with glue sticks. A few students even glued them to large plastic lids to make them more sturdy! Also, some students glued them onto a square of colored paper instead of making an ornament - that looked great too! Check out the whole lesson plan on Mrs. Taylor's site... Thanks for the great idea!!! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
